Twelve: Ghost Ships in the Night — Original and Re-edited Version by @Zorlone

Ghost Ships in the Night

Like ghost ships in the sea at night,

We live our lives, each day a fight!

Life passes by each daunting day,

we fervently refuse to stray. 
We may be caught  and in the grey,

It’s fine, cause we’re ghosts anyway.

Life seems too short, for all who care,
can’t you sit still and be aware. 
Life is like the life you wish spared

if you rush your life unaware.

Like ghost ships in the sea at night,

we live our lives, each day a fight.

Our hope is all we have to fight,

there’s no need to be affright.

We are ghosts living on a light,
through scourges of a rightful night.

And in the dark, we may not see,

though all the stars just let us be.
If we open our eyes so bright,

release shall all these ghostly fright.

Without a dream, and without gleam,

we would not last, our souls like glass!

Just make it last and make it fly
Like a photo from days gone by,
Our sails dance in the morbid sky
with fleets to quench your hungry eyes. 

Like ghost ships in the sea at night,

we live our lives, each day a fight!

Life is like the life you defeat,
it can be long, bitter, and sweet.
As long as we  begin to meet,
a life time that each moment greets,

One moment to last forever,

look up in space, come with wonder.
From the seas, we pass each other,
fear no ghosts nor gods asunder.

Like ghost ships in the sea at night,

we live our lives, each day a fight!

Original Version of

Ghost Ships in the Night

Like ghost ships in the sea at night,
We live our lives, each day a fight

Life passes by every day,
We won’t stay in the grey,
We are ghosts anyway

Life seems short,
For all who care

Can’t they see?
We are meant to be!

Life is like the life you wish
If you wish without delay

Without a dream,
Without a gleam,
We won’t last,
Our souls are glass!

Hope is all we have to fight,
There’s no need to be affright,
Ghosts we are if we live blind,

In the dark,
We can’t see,
All the stars that shine on us

But if we open our eyes bright,
To all the light

We will see,
Life is like the life we wish

Life can be,
Long and sweet,
As long as we  begin to see

A life time lives in every moment,
Make it last, make it count

Like a photo from days gone by,

Our sails dance in the sky
One moment for eternity be,
Look up and see,

From this ship,
We pass each other by,

No need to fear,
The gods are near.

[end]
